"Pumpkin Nog otherwise known as a pumpkin milkshake. Creamy, sweet, spicy, cool and refreshing, all rolled into one neat little drink. Make spiked pumpkin nog by adding a jigger of rum to each serving." — Lalena

I think the low ratings on this recipe can be attributed to people thinking they will get something rich and sweet like pumpkin pie or a fast food chain pumpkin milkshake, but this is really good. I agree it needs sweetener, so I added 1 1/2 Tbsp Splenda and that did the job perfectly (as would the same amount of sugar I presume). I also just used pumpkin pie spice instead of all the separate spices and I used approximately double (about 2 tsp for the whole recipe). It turned out pretty good and my mom, who doesn't like anything out of the ordinary, really enjoyed it as well.
not a hit here! i really like pumpkin, and i even incorporated some of the suggestions; however, i would not make this again. in my husband's words "it was like drinking pumpkin pie filling."
fantastic! i was looking for a recipe like this and finally found it. but make sure you take a look at how many it serves... i didn't; and made way too much! otherwise it is incredible. i do suggest adding a few ice cubes in there to make it a bit colder. all the blending warms it up, even with the ice cream in it. also i left out the mace, i didn't have any and it was perfect without it.
Eight thumbs up from all the members in my family. Even my husband, which surprized me. No mace, so I used 1 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. I made no other changes. This is very similar to a pumpkin pie shake which is beyond awesome. My kids thought I was the coolest mom ever.
Having made several milkshakes before, I made a minor modification without reading the other reviews. If you half the milk and double the ice cream, it gives it that perfect sweetness that doesn't require additional sugar. I also substituted allspice for the mace (I didn't have any mace on hand). I also halved the recipe in order to have it serve me, my husband, and my 3 kids (5 servings). It made 2 adult servings (about 1 3/4 c) and one 8oz child serving. While the full recipe might be too much, it doesn't serve 10 good-sized milkshakes. It will make 10 8 oz shakes.
I used this is a vague outline...just mixed eggnog with some pumpkin puree and soymilk, added cinnamon and nutmeg.
Wasn't a big hit. Needed about 1/2 cup sugar, and I had to make it in batches because not all the milk would fit in the blender. Kids liked it, but adults didn't care for it too much. Don't think I'll be making this again.
I started by following the recipe as written with the exception of the milk which wouldn't all fit into my blender. We all agreed that it was very bland.I added nearly a cup of sugar and more ice cream. I ended up using much less milk than what the recipe calls (about 1/2). The final product with all of my modifications was yummy, but not worth repeating.
